Samsung Lions meet at home after rain cancellation…can they keep the momentum going?
After scheduling their first game away from home in Daejeon, but having their other two games canceled due to rain, the Samsung Lions return home for a three-game weekend series against the Kiwoom Heroes starting on the 25th.
After going 4-2 last week with back-to-back wins, Samsung extended its winning streak to two games with a thrilling come-from-behind victory in the top of the ninth inning in Tuesday’s game against Hanwha, but was unable to continue its winning ways as the remaining two games of the series were canceled due to rain.
Sitting in eighth place, three games behind bottom-placed Kiwoom, Samsung needs a win against Kiwoom to avoid the ignominy of finishing last for the first time in its history.
For the first game of the weekend’s three-game series against Kiwoom, Samsung will start Widener, who earned his first win since joining Samsung with a dazzling six-inning no-hitter in the last game against KIA, while opposing Kiwoom will start Ahn Woo-jin, who has one win and a one-run ERA in two games against Samsung this season. 카지노
Samsung, who have been on the rise thanks to the strength of their batting lineup, will be hoping to take down their opponent’s starter Ahn Woo-jin quickly as a stepping stone to victory, while also relying on the performances of Koo Ja-rook, Kim Sung-yoon, and Ryu Ji-hyuk, who have been on a roll lately.
Daegu Cultural Broadcasting will have radio coverage of the first game of the weekend’s three-game series against Kiwoom, which will be a watershed moment in Samsung’s continued rise, starting at 6:30 pm.
